AC/DC to Bring the “Rock” to North America in the Fall

When AC/DC announced they would be releasing a new album last year, talks immediately began as to when the rock icons would hit the road to promote said record. That was quickly answered when they announced a world tour, but somehow managed to leave out the North American portion of dates.

Today, that was quickly remedied when they revealed their month-long tour schedule for North America. The “Rock or Bust North American Tour” will begin on Aug. 22 at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA and conclude on Sept. 28 at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium.

Tickets for the shows will be available beginning Monday, Feb. 16 through Ticketmaster. Check out the list of the stadium tour dates below.

AC/DC’s ROCK OR BUST NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES:

August 22 – Foxborough, MA @ Gillette Stadium
August 26 – E. Rutherford, NJ @ MetLife Stadium
August 28 – Quebec City, ON @ Plains Of Abraham
August 31 – Montreal, QC @ Olympic Stadium
September 3 – Ottawa, ON @ TD Place
September 5 – Moncton, NB @ Magnetic Hill
September 8 – Detroit, MI @ Ford Field
September 10 – Toronto, ON @ Downsview Park
September 15 – Chicago, IL @ Wrigley Field
September 20 – Edmonton, AL @ Commonwealth Stadium
September 2 – Vancouver, BC @ BC Place
September 25 – San Francisco, CA @ AT&T Park
September 28 – Los Angeles, CA @ Dodger Stadium

The “Rock of Bust World Tour” will be the first without founding member Malcolm Young, who is currently residing in a Sydney, Australia nursing home for dementia. Taking his place is his nephew Stephen who made his debut on this past weekend’s Grammy Awards during AC/DC’s fantastic opening performance.

Also gone form the line-up is drummer Phil Rudd who was arrested back in November on charges of attempting to “procure” the murders of two people and drug possession in New Zealand.

Instead of looking for someone new to take over the vacant drum kit, the band enlisted former drummer Chris Slade to come back. Slade, like Stephen, made his return to the band during the Grammys. In a recent interview, Rudd was optimistic saying that the would be returning to the band, but it looks like they had other plans.

AC/DC’s Rock or Bust was released last December and the official “Rock or Bust World Tour” will begin on May 5 in Holland.

Cartel to Celebrate ‘Chroma’ Tenth Anniversary with Tour

Cartel’s breakout and debut album, Chroma will be turning ten this year, and the band have now confirmed they will be heading out on a “Chroma Tenth Anniversary” tour this Spring.

Last year, the band confirmed they would be performing the 2005 record in full during South By So What? in Grand Prairie, TX,  making some wonder if this might be the beginning of a tour where they would celebrate the anniversary of the album.

During the weekend, the band helped add gasoline to the speculation fire when they tweeted some “Chroma stuff” would announced this week, specifically on Monday at 3 PM (EST).

The tour will officially begin on April 9 in Minneapolis at Mill City Nights and wrap up on May 16 in Lawrence, KS at the Granada. Heading out on the road with them will be TEAM, Driver Friendly, and Hit the Lights for half of the tour dates.

All Time Low to Go on Spring North American Headlining Tour

Alternative Press revealed earlier this month that All time Low would be the cover band on January’s issue of the monthly magazine.

In the interview with the band, it was revealed that they will heading out on a massive tour next year with Issues, Tonight Alive, and State Champs.

The article states, “Stateside, they’re also set to play their biggest headlining shows ever this year, starting with a spring tour featuring support from Issues, Tonight Alive, and State Champs.”

The spring tour is just the tip of the iceberg for the Baltimore-based band who revealed last month that they were currently in the studio recording new music with a projected release date of March 2015.

But if that wasn’t enough, they had announced in August they would be headlining several gigs in the United Kingdom with support from You Me At Six, including a show at London’s Wembley Arena which sold out in no time at all. Wembley Arena has a concert capacity of 12,500, so for that venue to sell out without the band releasing new material in years is quite a feat.

The achievement will be chronicle on video; the band had also revealed that the show will be recorded for their new live DVD titled, A Night in London with All Time Low.

No official tour dates have been released yet, but we can assume they will be coming pretty soon.

The Gaslight Anthem to Head Out on North American Tour in 2015

The tour is set to begin on Feb. 27 at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, RI and wrap up on March 28 at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH.

The Gaslight Anthem will be supported by The Scandals and Sammy Kay.

The Scandals will play opening act from the beginning of the tour until March 13 (their Minneapolis stop) while Sammy Kay will pick up from March 14 (their  Winnipeg stop) until the end of the tour.
